Supply Chain Operations, T&RS and OTM Engineering and Management Manual: Removal and Release of Trains to Traffic
|Publication Date:||2 March 2019|
This module is applicable to the Supply Chain Operations managed fleet where Network Rail is identified as the Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM) on the National Vehicle Register (NVR).
This module is applicable to all SCO teams responsible for the engineering and management of SCO T&RS and OTM assets.
SCO owned assets which have a third party ECM identified in the NVR are not in scope of this manual.
On-Track Plant (OTP), Mobile Depot Plant (MDP) and Fixed Depot Plant (FDP) are not in scope of this manual.
This module provides requirements and procedures to enable Supply Chain Operations (SCO) to comply with ROGS, with the requirements of NR/L1/RMVP/0001 and NR/L2/RMVP/0090 (where specified) and enables the implementation of an ISO 55001 compliant Asset Management System (AMS) within SCO.
This module details the procedure by which SCO vehicles are removed from and released to traffic in accordance with the maintenance plan or when defects are identified. The application of the requirements and procedures contained within this module mitigate the following high level risks:
a) Non-compliance with legislation and regulatory requirements.
b) Maintenance safety risks posed to staff undertaking maintenance on Network Rail On Track Machines (OTM) and Traction and Rolling Stock (T&RS) assets
Operational safety risks posed by Network Rail OTM and T&RS assets when operated on Network Rail managed infrastructure.
